Flagstaff Road, Gapsted : November 22

On Sunday, 22 November, Warby Walkers enjoyed the planned walk along Flagstaff Road. 

There were a total of 13 walkers, so we walked in two groups, so as to follow the current COVID-19 restrictions.  As the day was predicted to be warm, with a storm brewing, we set off about 8.15am, to beat the heat.

The walk started just off the Great Alpine Road, near the intersection with Buckland Gap Road.  We walked uphill along Flagstaff Road, having our morning tea break at the junction where Flagstaff Road meets Orton’s Track.

After morning tea, one group walked back down to where we had started from, that made their walk about 6km.

The other group continued on Orton’s Track, and then onto Orton’s Spur Track, which is rather steep.  Once it met up with Flagstaff Road again, we turned onto it, and walked back down to where we had started from.  A total of about 10km, with a 270m ascent and descent.

The road was well maintained, and it’s relatively safe walking as far as snakes go, as you have good vision of where you’re walking.

We enjoyed the views in both directions, up the valley to Mt Buffalo, and also of Murmungee Basin.  And of course it was great to catch up with each other.
